A Good Work Out

Updated on July 31, 2018

Does Your Body Good

It can be anything that makes your body physically tired

For some people it is going to the gym

Then other people prefer a day in the garden

A good walk around the block

Shooting some baskets and running back and forth

Going to the beach for the day

Taking a swim in the water

Many find a busy day at work will do the trick

The list continues...

The amazing thing is

So often we are giving our brain a rest

We don't have to think

Our focus is on our body

In whatever activity we are doing

So much so we may have one occurring thought

I am thirsty or when am going to eat

I find this so refreshing

My mind has no time to think of anything but

Any problems I have are quietly put on hold

They are not forgotten

Just put on the back burner for the time being

We can feel our muscles tense and stretch

In our minds we are starting to make plans for tomorrow

I think it is to do nothing but relax

How great is that

Our body is working in harmony

Finding ways to do things

At different times pushing our bodies to the limit

We have to be careful

To know when to stop

I have done all these things I mentioned above

I plan on to keep doing everything until I can't do it no more

A healthy mind and body need to coexist

Providing us with the best possible life

      Gypsy Rose Lee I walk a mile every day in the afternoon. One day it will be a lot longer. Running around and very busy I tend to find other things that take up my time. Anything is better than nothing. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a great morning.

      In a small apartment not much exercise to be had. However, I have discovered a short walk to the Halifax River and so I will begin my morning walks.

      Michael Milec It is so nice to hear about other people exercising and keeping fit. In the news and much of what people talk about it the bad and things that are wrong in the world. When we exercise we are doing good for our body and when we clear our mind we are thinking only healthy and positive thoughts. Unnecessary stress and added tension is released naturally. Years ago I heard if you have nothing good to say about anybody then don't say nothing at all. I wish more people would follow that rule. Then we could all get down to the nitty gritty of life and talk about helping and loving one another. Maybe this only exists in my head but if people were willing to change we could all live a happier life. Thank you so much for reading and sharing your story. You keep up the good work and at anytime feel free to post about your workout or exercise you achieved on any given day. I think when people the beautiful things in their own life other people love to add what they love too. It makes us appreciate each other even more. Have a lovely night.

      Yet another of your poems reflects where are you coming from, your background how you have been raised , taught and willingness to achieve success. A lovely proof "I plan on to keep doing everything until I can't do it no more. " Keep it on Michael, even after some limitations aging might come with - never stop - your body will like it, your soul and spirit will support it. It's all in "your head." (In mine too. When I realized how important is disciplined coordinated bodily exercise, - this was my disciplined plan : everyday equally keeping active body, soul and spirit. Yesterday was my "special challenge" day: I walked 23,501 steps,-only 10.31mi.- burned 3,518 cals, 243 min. hard work plus 10 floors. I slept well.)
